Cantemus is an experienced chamber choir of up to 30 singers that draws its membership from Cardiff and the surrounding area that has become established as one of Wales' finest chamber choirs.
Our next performance will be on Saturday 13th December at 6:45pm in the Dora Stoutzker Hall, RWCMD. Cantemus will be joined by the outstanding orchestra Réjouissance led by Simon Jones, playing on historical instruments. The joyful and colourful Gloria, one of two settings by Vivaldi, has become “The Vivaldi Gloria” due to its outstanding popularity. Bach’s original version of the Magnificat was composed in 1723 for the Leipzig Christmas Vespers. Zadok the Priest has been sung at the coronation of every British monarch since it was written. It will be performed alongside the three other beautiful anthems Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened, The King Shall Rejoice, and My Heart Is Inditing.
Tickets (£16/£12/£8) are available from the RWCMD box office and by telephone from 029 2039 1391.
